We’ve all done it before. We’ve all been cutting through that (insert any vegetable or fruit here), when suddenly your cutting board slips across the counter and you are in danger of cutting yourself and ruining your meal prep.
Here is a simple way to avoid this:
- Fold a wet kitchen towel in half and lay it underneath your cutting board.
- This will give traction to the smooth surface of the cutting board, and slips will be greatly avoided.
- This will also increase your confidence when prepping your food and add to your kitchen expertise!
Also, don’t underestimate the importance of using the right sized cutting board. There are all sorts of cute little boards out there… They serve a purpose (although not much of one), and meal prep is not one of them! Save those little boards for little jobs. And we all know there are very few little jobs in the kitchen.
Now get a large sized cutting board, place it on top of a damp cloth and getting prepping!
